Friday staff pick: Coast to Coast

Hi, I’m Jean-François Côté, project manager and scrum master for Internet development here at the NFB. Here are my suggestion of films to watch on; 2 very different films about the opposing coasts of our country.

The Intertidal Zone is a beautiful exploration of BC’s coastline. Full of beautiful creatures and mesmerizing colors. A very fascinating film.

A completely different film set at the other end of the country is St. Lawrence: Stairway to the Sea. In this feature-length documentary we follow Jacques Cousteau in his exploration of the St-Lawrence, a completely different ecosystem. It’s great to follow such a great man in our own waters. It is less colorful than The Intertidal Zone and more serious in exposing the consequences of industries and trading along the River.
